The first Open Day of the summer was held at Andrew Jolley’s in Poulton-le-Fylde in warm sunshine with around 15 people attending. A good variety of trains were run throughout the afternoon on his very neat and well laid out railway. A big thank you to Andrew for his usual hospitality of endless cups of tea/coffee and cakes and biscuits. A selection of photos from the event can be found on the Gallery page or by clicking here.

A message was received today to say that Don Mcgeachin, the group’s treasurer, was found dead at home around the end of May. Don had been ill for some time and had been in and out of hospital receiving dialysis treatment. He was a long standing¬† member of the group and as treasurer could always be found on the door at the meetings in Altrincham collecting the money. He had a keen interest in model railways and was also a member of the Manchester Model Railway Society. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and our condolences go out to his family.
